2007 Cliopatria Awards Nominations: BEST WRITING
Nominations are now closed.
Look for the winners to be announced in January
Please submit, in comments below, your nominations for the best writer on a history blog since 1 December 2006. [registration not required to post nominations, but the usual rules of civility and conduct still apply] Nominations will be accepted from November 1st through 30th.
Please include a URL for the posts (not just a URL for the blog). You many nominate as many posts or series as you wish in this category, and you may nominate individual blogs or bloggers in other categories as well.
Bloggers do not need to be academic historians. If you're not sure whether a blog or blogger qualifies as"history," nominate them anyway and the judges will make a final determination. If you have questions, feel free to contact Ralph Luker or leave a comment here.
Judging Committee: Ancarett, Sharon Howard, John Carter Wood
[Judges are ineligible to win awards they are judging, but feel free to nominate them for something else!]

For his posts at Airminded http://airminded.org and Revise and Dissent http://hnn.us/blogs/56.html
Basically if I see Brett's name on the RSS feed for Revise and Dissent I know there's going to be something interesting to read.
Declaration: I co-blog on Revise and Dissent.

It's a bit impertinent to nominate oneself. Therefore, I nominate myself.

In my view, David Kaiser of History Unfolding is the best writer in the history blogosphere today, bar none. This was an easy choice.
